I am a Vortex member, and man has the SRT been stirring things up lately :lol:
I must admit I love the SRT, and am considering cancelling my order for a 20th AE GTI :lol:
Almost forogt, you IQ might drop a couple points reading that thread, just a warning.
For future use...
Up until a few months ago, I was trying to decide between the 20th Ann. Gti and the SRT-4. I made my mind up before I actually saw the SRT-4 in person...mainly due to the power (215 vs. 180), and price. I finally got a chance to test drive the SRT-4 a few weeks ago, and it blew me away. The rumble of the exhaust...the power...the seats...etc. The VW admittedly has a better fit and finish...and I like the look of the hatch...and the jazz blue color. However, I cant justify paying $5k extra for a car that is just as heavy as the SRT-4, and has a lot less power. Not to mention the reliability issues of the 337's worried me a bit.
My local dodge dealer (through www.carmax.com), gave me a price of $18,469 on the dodge....after tax, title, license...im looking at $20,241 out the door.
The Gti is $23,300 (MSRP).....with tax, title and license its about $25,471
Thats a difference of $5230. As a college student, I just cant justify shelling out the extra $5k. Maybe you have a better financial situation...but thats what sealed it for me.
